My father used to tease me every weekend, "Itni mehngi bike li hai isi par ghar aaja (you bought such an expensive bike, come home on it)". So, this Diwali we decided to go home on bike to fulfill his wish. After riding 3000 km in 7 days, crossing 6 states and 2 Union Territories, we (me and my wife) realized that he was kidding and we ended up being in "Papaji ki udti hui chappal waali situation".
Idea to cover the complete Indian Western Coastal line was another big motivation for this ride. Previous three rides, where we covered complete Kerela and Karnataka coastal line were great and worked as a fuel for planning the next trip. With this ride we conclude the complete coastal line and are able to prove one point, "leaving your job and travel" is not the only way to fulfill your travel dreams. It took total 4 trips and 18 days to cover coastal route from Kanyakumari to Delhi. We have covered Manali to Leh in 2014. So, now only Delhi to Manali route is left to complete the stretch of Kanyakumari to Leh.
